I had a problem booting from the clone disk after performing Disk Copy with EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition. I saw many other people have the same problem on the forum but didn't really find a solid solution. After many attempts to different possible solutions, I was able to fix the problem and thought that might help others. See below:
Lenovo Thinkpad T42
Windows XP Professional
Original Hard Disk - Hitachi Travelstar 40GB ATA
Clone Disk - WD Scorpio 250GB PATA
Used USB hard drive enclosure
Performed Disk Copy
Checked "Shut down the computer after changes are applied" option
Disk Copy completed and laptop shutdown
Swapped the Original Hard Disk with the Clone Disk
Went into blank screen with a flashing underscore and stuck there
Went into BIOS
Set boot from CD
Insert Windows XP CD (it is a copy from another computer because Thinkpad didn't come with one)
Boot from CD
Went into Windows Setup
I was hoping to repair the installation, but didn't have that option
I went ahead to setup a new Windows XP
After setup, it was booting succesfully and created dual boot
I deleted the new Windows XP boot by doing the following:
Click Start, click Control Panel and then double-click System.
Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings > Default Operating System, click on the button under that heading & it should reveal another heading.
To manually edit the boot options file, click Edit.
A window opens up with boot info
You should see 2 boot paths
Delete the boot path of the new Windows XP (it should be the first one)
Then I restarted laptop successful without the dual boot screen coming up and everything is working fine now.
I hope this help.
